Anushka to build shelter for animals outside Mumbai

Anushka Sharma, who brought in her 30th birthday with husband Virat Kohli last week, took the occasion to announce a project close to her heart. The actress, who is currently accompanying Virat on the IPL circuit, said on Twitter that she would soon be starting an animal shelter outside the city.

Her post reads, “I’m building an animal shelter just outside Mumbai – a home for those animals that are stranded, left to fend for themselves and have to brave harsh conditions. A home where they will be cared for, loved, protected and nurtured. This has been my calling for years now and my dream is finally coming true. I will seek your time, support and advice to make this home a place that looks after living beings with utmost care and compassion – all in due course of time.”
